- Multiple stereo configurations for clipping stereo buses
Why make a clipper when there are already so many?
Little Clipper is the lighter, smaller version of it’s big
brother (Big Clipper). Clipping is one of the more misunderstood
processes in mixing. When used correctly, it can make mixing easier.
Things just fall into place better and dynamics stay under control. As
it is with all effects however, it’s easy to overdo. Little Clipper
makes it easy to dial in with clear meters that show you how much
clipping is occurring, and all the essential features that let you dial
in your clipping to be just the right amount.
Sometimes you need crisp hard clipping, sometimes you need
smoother soft clipping. Little Clipper lets you choose easily how hard
you want your clipping to be.
Stereo or Mid/Side
Little Clipper lets you choose your channel configuration for
stereo tracks. We have found that clipping often sounds much more
natural in Mid/Side mode on stereo buses. It even lets you clip only the
mid or side channels without affecting the other, giving you even more
control over your clipping.
I thought clipping was bad. Why would I do it on purpose?
Just like all effects, clipping is bad when you do it
accidentally. When used purposefully, it’s a powerful tool that that can
be used to increase your apparent dynamics without making your peaks
jump all over the place. It’s especially powerful on drums. Just a
little bit of clipping your snare before your compressor will give your
compressor much more natural sounding, predictable results.
